Jimmy Kimmel returned from his summer break concerned about Covid and baffled by the words and actions of InfoWars host Alex Jones.
âIt wasn’t a fun Labor Day weekend when it comes to Covid,â the late-night host said in his Jimmy Kimmel Live! monologue. âThe number of new cases has increased by more than 300% compared to a year ago. “
He lamented not only the lack of progress, but the lack of science behind the decision-making of some Americans.
âWe still have a lot of Pandimwits out there,â Kimmel observed. âPoison control centers have seen an increase in calls from people taking medicine for livestock (ivermectin) – to fight the coronavirus – but they will not take the vaccine. ”
The logic of this escaped Kimmel.
“One of the reasons these seafood crackers go for ivermectin is that they don’t trust ‘big pharma’ – which is good, I guess, except that ivermectin is manufactured by Merck – which is the 4th largest pharmaceutical company in the world, âsaid the late night host.

âAnd even Merck tells people to cut it,â Kimmel pointed out. “They released a statement saying that ivermectin has ‘no scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against Covid’.”
Logically, he stressed, “If a drug company says ‘please don’t take the drug we’re selling’ you should probably listen to it.”
Instead, Americans seem to be listening to another recognized expert in the field.
“Ivermectin got a lot of support over the weekend,” Kimmel said, “from one of America’s top doctors. None other than Sandy Hook / Internet madman – Alex Jones”
Jones appeared on his show Friday and criticized Dr Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates, calling them “murderers.” To demonstrate his challenge, the InfoWars the host took what appeared to be ivermectin and washed it with Topo Chico (Mexican sparkling water).
Kimmel found not only Jones’ story confusing, but his choice of drink as well.
âI’ve never seen someone so crazy drink a Topo Chico before,â said the late night host. “Who would have guessed he would water her with that?” “
“Maybe I would have thought of some kind of nacho flavored Bang energy drink.”
